"As an athlete, I regularly took painkillers, but I had no choice, I had to play.
During my 15 years in high-level sport, like many athletes, I was regularly confronted with physical discomforts that unfortunately sometimes turned into an injury. During my volleyball career, I played for a long time managing pain (lumbago, herniated disc, tendonitis or muscular tension), which I found difficult to get rid of. Prescriptions of medicinal painkillers had become so frequent, that I no longer felt the effectiveness, and worse, It became a danger for my health. I therefore wished to reduce my pain medication considerably and looked for some 100% natural and risk-free solutions to complete the treatment of these pains. Not finding suitable solutions, I decided to create sport & green.
The aim of sport & green is to respond to Athletes main problems naturally and while preserving their health. The answer to these various problems (inflammation, stress, sleep, joint pain, muscle tension, digestion, cramps, aches and pains and even immunity) is a set of solutions to be implemented (lifestyle hygiene, nutrition and medical support) that we wish to help you develop through sport & green".

"NO PAIN, NO GAIN", we have all heard this precept which is accepted and sometimes advocated by athletes. Whether it is pain caused by physical effort, injuries after a trauma or chronic pain, it is an integral part of a sportsperson's life. They can become recurrent and almost systematically lead to the prescribing of painkillers.
Relieving oneself with painkillers is a common problem for athletes that is all too often neglected.
According to a study published in the scientific journal Sport & Science, taking painkillers leads to abusive consumption which affects the health of many athletes. In fact, pain killers treat the symptoms but not the problem directly. On the other hand, they can cause intoxication or side effects. Often linked to self-medication, this is a worrying phenomenon for health that can lead to doping.
With sport & green, we want to break the idea that pain should be linked to overcoming one's limits. Pain should not be a habit. We have therefore developed an alternative to medicated pain killers by offering solutions to support you in your sporting activities.
